Miss Fanciful herself, Vanessa Valencia, creative entrepreneur and writer of the ever whimsical and oh-so-popular blog A Fanciful Twist is a Dream Does extraordinaire!!! And we have her on Artistically Speaking Talk Show his Sunday!!! We will enter her world for 90 minutes (6:30 PM EDT) and find out what just makes her so lovable and adored. Don’t miss it. There will be a surprise or two. Here is her post about the show.
Miss Fanciful, as I call her, is living her dream indeed. She lives in and around Tuscon, Arizona (more than 1 home) with an assortment of living and fanciful family members! Her musings are legendary in the artful blogging world and her fancies often grace the pages of such magazines as Somerset Studio, Artful Blogging, Art Doll Quarterly cover story, and many more. She is often written about on other blogs like: Decor8, Apartment Therapy, Style Hive, Delightful Blogs, etc. She has even been interviewed at All Things Cupcake. To say she is amazing would be a understatement of her accomplishments indeed. See all her press here.
She started blogging about the same time I started Cre8Tiva’s Blog…so we have been friends forever. She even had a feature in my magazine “The Artistic Stenciler.” We have traveled this blogging journal sometimes arm-in-arm. I have watched her grow and thrive with the heart of a loving friend. If you stop by her blog, let her know I sent you!!!
Holly Becker of Decor8 speaks of how she showcases her work, “I enjoy the bright colors and how well she’s photographed her new prints in her home, gives you a great idea as to how they’d look in your own space. Great work, Vanessa!”
GreenEyedLillies of All Things Cupcake writes, “I could spend days looking at the pictures on the A Fanciful Twist Blog. I consider myself a pretty creative person, but Vanessa Valencia’s creations have left me in awe.”
from her bio
i love: treasure seeking, everything art – discussion of, creation of, acquisition of – art, playing the piano, watching unusual interesting movies, day-dreaming, reading a fantastic novel/reading about the lives of artists and historical figures, being swept off my feet by creative people, strange and unusual objects and times, stories and people…attics intrigue me…
I feel like a strange and curiously artistic woman from the 1800’s trapped in the body of a thirty-something year old girl living in a bizarre Arizona. I make all kinds of art. Paintings, mixed media, paper dresses, art dolls, jewelry, illustrations… I also make funky pottery, and I am always exploring other mediums…
I live in Tucson Arizona, and have an art studio & private little gallery at my country home in Catalina, Arizona. My little private gallery is only open for shows, or occassionally by appointment. However, all of my currently available art pieces, can be found online.
I realized many years ago that today is the day and this is the time. Embrace and adore now, this minute, this second, everything around you and about you. There is only so long you can dwell in the darkness before you have to escape…
